Ways to clean a bong

so, does anyone have any particular way you clean your bongs? Mine are getting pretty filthy, but my big glass one is extremely difficult to clean (shape and lack of entry ways). Any tips???

Hey man, here's the absolute easiest way to clean it of all gunk and residue. Go to your local hardware store and get some Acetone.
Take your bong outside and put some in there, a little bit goes a long way. The stuff smells and isn't too great for ya, so try not to inhale too much of it. Its okay if you get it on your hands, just make sure to wash. Anyway after you put some on, put your hands over any openings and shake it to get the acetone anywhere.
After your done shaking it, drain the stuff somewhere.. Acetone is very famible, so I donno if your supposted to or not, but I just pour it down the drain.

At this point most (if not all) the gunk should be gone. if it isn't, or it isn't clean enough for you. do the above again and rince it with more acetone.

After you do all that. get some water and a mild soap (like for washing dishes or whatever) and then completely rinse out the bong with water. drain it, then rinse it again with water and soap.. if it still smells (it shouldn't) just keep washing..

and then you should be good to go!

isopropyl alcohol and salt works well, just shake it up for awhile, let it sit, and drain.

They make cleaning solutions for bongs. I heard they work really well, never tried any myself though. I'd just use the methods suggested in the thread. Alcohol and salt works well

I watched this work wonders.

Ok, so this 2 ft Roor was...heavily-used, shall we say. It was grimy as hell.

But check it out.

Block the bowl with something (we used tape and saran wrap).
Fill the bad boy with hot water.
Put a spoonful or two of OxiClean in that piece.
Marvel at the monster you have created.

The OxiClean literally rips the resin right off the sides of the bong. Unfortunately, it kind of foams up and comes out the top, and leaves some sticky on the outside of the bong, but the INSIDE of your bong, the hard part to clean, is spotless. Just wipe down the outside with a hot wet rag.

We did this to two, beautiful, large glass bongs. They were SPOTLESS. It was AMAZING. You could fucking see through them. It was RIDICULOUS. Plus, it was easy as hell. You didn't have to do like, any work.

with the cleaners you purchase your buying for conveince...especially if its a spoon or something and you put it in a ziplock bag with salt it will retain a bit of the taste unless you spend a lot of time rinsing it out...not to mention using salt ive read is not the best thing to use on your glass...as opposed to a five dollar bottle of bling which lasts you for at least three cleanings of any dirty spoon...not to mention the lemony smell...

edit...left it a bit ambiguous heard it was better to use rice though because of grain size...
